Detailed description

American Legion Country Club is a Semi-Private 18 hole golf course located in Mount Union, Pennsylvania.

American Legion golf course first opened in 1924. This mature course, built originally as the Juniata Valley Colony Club, was later sold to the Simpson-Hunt Post of the American Legion.

The American Legion golf course layout is a fairly straight golf course with a few doglegs and a lot of up-and-down from tees to greens. The first nine holes travel around the perimeter of the course, with woods and out-of-bounds along the way. The second nine holes wind their way around the interior of the course. The greens are relatively small, extremely fast and have a wavy motion to challenge the most experienced golfer.

Par for the course is 74. From the back tees the course plays to 6,521 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,791 yards and a par-78 for the ladies.. The longest hole on the course is # 7, a par-6 that plays to 638 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 15, a par-3 that plays to 115 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 4, a 434 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at American Legion Country Club is # 15, a 115 yard par-3.
